Please, no.  LuaRocks makes me a sad panda.  Not to mention that it
hardly ever works correctly for me, getting it to spit out things
suitable for integration into other products is a pain.

I think I'd be happier if what LuaRocks was was a system for converting
a description of a Lua module into a package; so RPM, DEB, tar.gz,
Windows MSI, etc.
